1881 per Sagardi

Occupying a great location in Port Vell, 1881 per Sagardi specialises in grilled meat and seafood, and does an excellent paella too.

Grilled seafood is the speciality at 1881 Per Sagardi, and it is about the best paella in town

Okay. Port Vell is tourist central. But that doesn’t mean you need to suffer through a sub-par tourist meal. On the rooftop of the Museu d’Història de Catalunya, 1881 per Sagardi rises above the tourist traps below, offering stunning views across the marina and superyachts (well, from the terrace out front, if not the dining room), and serving some of the best seafood dishes in town.

You pay for the privilege (expect to pay around €50 a head with limited wine consumption), but in this instance you get what you pay for. We’ve been back a number of times.
